Re: Bronson: should he be signed to a long term contract?
I think he's a decent option for any rotation and have no issue with him getting picked up next year or even beyond. He's a mental pitcher, so his raw stuff isn't as important as for others. I think Arroyo could live up to a contract taking him into his 37-38 years, just not for 12 million. He may ask for 8-12, we'll see.
I'd feel much better going into next year with Arroyo than without, especially since there's always teams looking at getting him when the Reds are down.
